A cookie for Santa


Here's another of Amy's original digi designs--Cookie Break Santa. Love that name! See the little cookie in his hand? Now that's my kind of Santa!

I love how quickly you can start using digis after you download them, and being able to resize them, too. Not having to clean your stamps, or wonder where you're going to store them is an added bonus.

It wasn't my original intention to make a brown Christmas card. But I liked how the reds and greens looked against the background and decided to leave it as is. You can find Cookie Break Santa along with more of Amy's digi fairies, angels, and elves at All That Scraps.

Supplies:
Cardstock: Stampin' Up
Ink: Memento, Ranger Distress Inks, Versamark
Stamps: Amy's digi, Hero Arts
Copic markers for coloring
Nestabilities, Cuttlebug embossing folder
Felt leaves & gemstones (Hero Arts), pop dots
White embossing powder
